The Medical Board of Australia will not take action if you cannot meet the CPD registration standard when you renew your medical registration this year.
We encourage medical practitioners to continue to do CPD that is relevant to their scope of practice. However, we understand that medical practitioners may have difficulty meeting CPD requirements this year as a result of withdrawn/denied leave requests, conference cancellations and the re-prioritisation necessary to meet workforce needs.
The Board will keep a close watch on the situation to determine whether the 2021 renewal year is affected.

ANZSOM members have free online access to the official journal of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine, Royal College of Physicians, London. This journal publishes high-quality research relating to the full range of chemical, physical, ergonomic, biological and psychosocial hazards in the workplace and to environmental contaminants and their health effects.
The journal is accessible to members via the link below (NOTE: member login required); there is no additional charge and members can continue to enjoy access while their subscription to ANZSOM remains current.
ANZSOM is committed to providing high value educational opportunities for AFOEM Trainees. This includes specific opportunities at our Annual Scientific Meetings. In 2020, this includes Direct Observation of Field Skills at workplace site visits.
ANZSOM provides continual professional development opportunities via online learning resources, the Annual Scientific Meeting and state branch meetings. Generally these activities are not formally accredited with the Royal Australian College of Nursing, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or Royal Australasian College of Physicians (AFOEM) however, you can claim CPD points for participation in non-accredited activities. Participation in ANZSOM Committees may also count towards CPD points.
